退后一步走进密西西比州纳奇兹国家历史公园历史长河的时光中。


纳奇兹印第安人是一个构筑土丘的母系社会的美洲印第安人,但在欧洲人开始到达后全部消失了。然而,他们的文化在纳奇兹国家历史公园中保存下来。


在这里,你还可以一窥南北战争前的南方生活。岔路口(The  Forks of the Road)是以前的一个兴旺的奴隶市场和大棉花种植园,保存完好供游人观赏南方的棉花奴隶主所制造的大量财富,以及棉花产业的宽广。


最后,你可以从阅读一名被释放的奴隶,威廉·约翰逊的日记来了解他们的日常生活,他的联排住房被保存下来。

Step back into time at Mississippi’s Natchez National  Historic Park. The Natchez American Indians were a mound-building matrilineal  society of American Indians that all but disappeared after Europeans began  arriving. However, their culture is preserved at Natchez National Historic  Park. Here you can also catch a glimpse into antebellum Southern life.


The  Forks of the Road, formerly a prospering slave market and a large cotton  plantation, is preserved for visitors to appreciate the extreme wealth  generated by Southern cotton slave-owners, as well as the sheer breadth of  the industry.


Finally, you can get a sense of everyday life reading the  diaries of a freed slave, William Johnson, whose townhouse is preserved.  


History is all around us! Which historical sites have impacted you the most?
